#5 TIO PERICO (3-1) earned the best number in an easy front running win as the favorite at Thistledown July 29. Jason DaCosta is 3-for-7 with his dirt to all-weather starters, and he probably wins this if he handles synthetic ground.

#2 Kissmeonemoretime (2-1) showed speed in all three local starts, and he graduated at 5.5 furlongs July 28. He should show speed from the inside post. 

#3 Bear Creek (8-1) turned away his pace challengers in a decent debut MSW win at Presque Isle July 29. The first time gelding needs to run faster to threaten my top two contenders.
